I loved Black Sheep which Brynne was one of the author's on, so when I saw Marrow I knew I was going to read it. What I did not know, however, was that it was going to be my favorite book so far this year. In fact, I haven't loved a book this much since I read Little Dove by Layla Frost last summer.
This is one of those books that stick with you. I specifically had days when I got closer to the end and tried to pace myself because while I wanted to read the rest of the story, I also didn't want it to end.
Trisha and Brynne made amazing characters and this book literally has everything. It's rivals to lovers which was done incredibly well. At first, I had no idea what was happening. All I knew was Jack was in a lot of trouble. But then the plot twist kicked in and my jaw dropped.
Kyrie had this man by the balls. No, seriously. This cute little ball of sunshine knocked his ass out and I was living for it. And then she proceeded drag him by his balls and own him at every turn, until he finally had to admit that she owned him in every way. And when he did, we all knew he was never going to let her go.
This man, this man who hated this woman, who thought of killing her multiple times, bred flowers to match the exact hue of her eyes, and he didn't even realize it until three years later. That's how obsessed he was with her and she was just as obsessed with him. And finding out why was both heartbreaking and made me root for her and her complete badassery.
And Jack? Jack was a complete treat. He is the true grumpy possessive king. And I loved how both infuriated and mesmerized he was by Kyrie, and how hard he fell for her once he got to see behind her mask. And the end? Everything was made possible because of Jack. Everything.
I loved and definitely recommend this book. However, you've got to read the trigger warnings and know when you come in, you're in for a ride. This book is dark, brutal, and bloody, but it also has hysterical banter, who did this to you, possessiveness on both sides, and utter loving devotion. Oh and that Epilogue? Fucking priceless.
